The MAGNELIQ project

Prensilia is part of the MAGNLEIQ project. The MAGNELIQ project (a magneto-electric liquid – better sensing) is a research project funded under the Horizon 2020 EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation and coordinated by the Jožef Stefan Institute of Ljubljana (Slovenia).

MAGNELIQ aims at developing a radically new class of materials: magneto-electric (ME) liquids. The project will combine experimental studies with theoretical modelling to design liquids that will be able to have their magnetic properties manipulated with an electric field, and vice-versa.

The ME materials will be used to generate a series of break-through sensing technologies, such as:

  1. Distributed-force sensors for robotics and prosthetics;
  2. Miniature, contactless and all-dielectric rotation sensors for industrial, transportation and medical applications;
  3. Remote and secure voltage and current measurements for smart grids.
